View Full Version : Those who came before...

10-24-2009, 04:07 AM
K, I know this has probably come up before, but anticipating the release of AC2, I've been replaying the first installment, and can't help but wonder: Who does Vidic mean when he says that all the discoveries were gifts from "those who came before." I'm up late bothered by trying to find a good answer to this one question. My roommates think aliens, though I'm in favor of an ancient civilization, such as the Atlanteans (Yunagoni)... What do you guys think? Please help!

Most probably Yonaguni/Yunagoni.

Find out in AC2 maybe http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

thats why i think Yonaguni/Yunagoniis a good setting for the 3rd game they can have a very civilized nation, just cut off from the enviroment. they say they don't wanna go back, before AC 2 becouse players have then experienced so much fun it would be sad to go back and don't have a banking system and more in other words a less civilized times but in Yonaguni/Yunagoni they can pretty much make up a nation that is really advanced. even having that technoligy, the piece of eden and the other Artefacts

Are they like the "forerunners" from Halo? (I only played the first one, not sure if that mystery was solved in the sequels)

The "ones who came before" sound very mystical and all that rubbish. O_o

10-24-2009, 11:31 AM
it was solved at the end of Halo 3 Tony if u got the side audio missions

but on topic, the ones who came before to me seemed just like the Templars taking other civilizations secrets and adding it to their own to make a sort of "library" of knowledge

Thanks Blemin, super good article. I'm still can't stand the ancient astronaut theory though. It just doesn't feel like assassin's creed. If they had been created by aliens, then I think Abstergo would be trying harder to contact the aliens, rather than focusing so hard on finding what they'd supposedly left behind. I really think it's an atlantean kind of thing. Can't wait to find out! Thanks for your posts guys, it's good to know not everyone thinks it's all about aliens.

10-24-2009, 12:04 PM
Aliens?! Nah, my guess is the ancient civilizations (Yonaguni, Atlantis, Mayans maybe) cuz I read on assassins creed wikipedia that 'those who have gone before' or something like that, are the ancient civilizations...which supposedly they built the piece of eden, and possibly many other dangerous objects and gadgets...t

10-24-2009, 12:06 PM
Mayans..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif ?

I seriously doubt it.

10-24-2009, 12:13 PM
oh my bad there, no Mayans...because of my excessive weed smoking, I might say things that make no sense, thus sounding dumb http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif ...lets just say that they are the ancient civilizations and leave it at that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif...(to avoid further mistakes of course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

10-24-2009, 12:13 PM
I think that the a plausible possibility would be that the artifacts could have come from a number of ancient civilizations (Think Ancients, in stargate, only without the aliens...) perhaps, yunagoni, atlantis, the mayans, and others...

off topic the forerunners is solved in Halo 2 i think my brother is a huge halo fanatic but if you are talking about who like were the forerunners them selves as people or what civilation are they im not sure about the people but i know what civilization sorry for typos

10-25-2009, 12:16 PM
the foreunners are the ones who made the Halo rings and were wiped out before this happened, then the covenant came and believed they were Gods and that was the portal to salvation. It was solved in Halo 3

10-25-2009, 01:13 PM
the forerunners arnt gone they are still alive and it was solved in halo 2

10-25-2009, 01:17 PM
never mind i was mislead your right

Thank you kakashi 560. Let's keep this focused.

I've heard people insisting that it has to be the "Lizard People" that everyone seems to think exist!, and honestly i'm soooooo fed up with that rubbish!
I think "The ones who came before" are most likely one of the ancient civilizations and not "Lizard" people.
I thought it could have been the people from Atlantis, but it's just a guess.

EDIT: Sorry if you believe they exist i just find it ridiculous.

Annunnaki anyone? They are connected to many "Ancient Civilizations"

10-30-2009, 11:33 AM
the one's who came before could also lead to people in the future as they have technically passed that time before you. so in theory for them to be further along the time line they would of had to come before.

<span class="ev_code_WHITE">It's me. I'm the one who came before. Don't tell Ubi I said this!</span>

I hope it isn't magic. Uncharted 2 had a scary demon sasquatch moster, and Uncharted had these wierd naked zombie things. It really annoyed me that such a good game where you spend most of the time killing people puts you against monsters.

10-30-2009, 12:20 PM
Yeh, I hate it when they do that. FarCry, Crysis, Wolfenstein and Return to castle Wolfenstein would've been much better if they'd left the sci-fi crap out of it.

Sure, AC may have sci-fi elements in the story as well, but the gameplay is still realistic. The fact that it blends in with actual history also tones down the impact of sci-fi.
